Preparation-Steel City NROTCU - Carnegie Mellon University

Preparation for Freshman Orientation

The NROTC program is a physically demanding program.  Freshman Orientation will be our first opportunity to evaluate your physical fitness.  During orientation you can expect to run up to 1.5 miles in a military formation, perform a series of calisthenics, and take a basic swimming test.  The weather in Pittsburgh during August is often hot and humid.  You should prepare yourself accordingly prior to your arrival.
